The number of deaf teens and young adults with cochlear implants attending our high schools and colleges is increasing. To effectively serve these students it is important to understand how cochlear implant technology works and its potential impact on post-secondary education. This presentation will provide an update on cochlear implants and describe key educational and clinical support services requested by cochlear implant users pursuing academic and employment opportunities.
